We had a great experience at Boathouse. The room was nice, comfortable and most importantly very clean -- including the bathroom. The view was spectacular even though we don't directly see the shoreline. The staff were friendly but they need to learn to speak better English or at least be able to communicate well. It was frustrating when we tried...

We had a fabulous stay at Boathouse! The hotel was literally by the beach and the room was clean and neat! All the staff were friendly, helpful, and very proactive - amazing team. The spa was super soothing with very professional masseuses. Only thing negative is that the breakfast options were rather limited. Overall, I rate FANTASTIC.

Loved the fact the hotel was a boutique style, the staff loved my 2 year old and were very warm and genuine. Room was great, ocean view, enormous bed for the 3 of us and overall had a great vibe, with the beach club. Rooms were clean and the hotel had awesome food too! The price is a bit more...

This was our second time at Boathouse and we treated ourselves to a beach front suite. Blew us away, what a good choice, best room in the place in our opinion. The initial meet & greet was lacking the fanfare we are used to in Thailand missing the cold towell & welcome drink but that didn't particularly worry us. The...

We made a last minute decision to head to Phuket for a long weekend of relaxing and decided to stay in Kata for the first time (not our normal Phuket destination) Kata and Patong have a tradition for being over crowded but our first experience of Boathouse by Montara in Kata was just as we wished for our long weekend....

The view from the lobby is always great. Hotel staff is nice. This time, we chose the delux room on the 2nd floor. The space on the private valcony was excellent. Only a bit negative thing was the attitude of restautrant staff. Some of them do not pay attention to the guests.

So very impressed by the boathouse. Perfect location right on the beach, and away from the busy section. Felt like paradise. We stayed for 6 nights (not long enough). The bedroom we stayed at was the Seaview, which felt like we were the only ones there (this could be that we were off season), it included a huge private area...

The mission, should you choose to accept it: A quiet, relaxing beachside getaway in Phuket. This place is all about two things - beach and breakfast. Beach: - During our stay in Phuket we traveled widely - up to Patong, along Karon Beach, along Kata-Noi, and of course along Kata Beach. We can genuinely say that, in choosing The Boathouse,...
